What We Do.

We are a creative law firm that prides itself on finding the best bespoke solutions for our clients problems. If the obvious approach wont work, we will look for other ways of getting a result; it's a natural aspect of how our people work.

In recent years we've made a significant investment in our facilities and technology. More crucially, we invest in the best legal minds, with the knowledge and experience to provide genuinely full-service support to our clients. Due to our reputation and exceptional career prospects, Carson McDowell is known for attracting and retaining the best and brightest in this profession.

This strong skills base means that for complex transactions, we can integrate teams of experts from our 23 specialist areas. 

 'We place paramount emphasis on understanding our clients' business needs; indeed our responsive, solution-focused approach has helped our clients to achieve business goals. A Partner is involved in every project, to ensure the highest standards of legal services.'

Our depth and breadth of skills and knowledge, our focus on communications and our effectiveness has earned Carson McDowell an enviable reputation within the industry and business community.

We are recognised as market leaders by the industry and receive many major recommendations. In particular we are highly rated in Chambers and Partners UK and have received the highest accreditation across a number of major practice areas. We are currently ranked Band 1 in more areas of expertise by Chambers and Partners UK than any other Northern Irish law firm.

Our client roster represents some of the largest, most commercially sophisticated Northern Irish based clients: 'blue-chip' industrial, service and financial companies, emerging enterprises, public sector bodies, as well as international clients.

We've always enjoyed a strong global outlook, acting regularly on behalf of major City of London practices. In 1998 we developed a strategic alliance with Dublin-based Mason Hayes & Curran, allowing operations on an all-Ireland basis.
